Phew... well... I can tell right now that it's going to be a late night. :D

Haven't watched Survivor yet... that's next.

I have, however, made mods to my web site [ :: corto's playground :: ] (which, btw, needs a new name... )
I set the cam refresh to 10 seconds (from 15) and redid the little barometer bar for the counting...
And I made the remote cam and the main cam page java push updates and put a new page in with an good ol'meta "page refresh".

The issue there was that when Windows XP Pro got Service Pack one, it removed the JVM (or runtime or whatever it's called) from the operating system and put nothing there in it's place. That's called ass covering while they duked it out with Sun Microsystems over the code.
I don't know if this was a problem for XP Home Edition or if new versions with SP1 preloaded have this problem.
If it is a problem for your computer... (it would mean that many on-line game websites wouldn't work properly for ya) you should go to Sun ( and download the windows XP java client. (It's a kick in Bills teeth and it works great). Alternatively, you can get the MS Java Client from somewhere on microsofts site... (google it).

Any hooooo... all bedda now.

Please let me know if you run into any problems with the cam page or remote or whatever.
I love to get feedback, including critical, on the web site.
(note: the locks on the menu are for the stats and bandwidth monitoring pages and those are private for good reasons...)

:D See ya.
